About the role
The year 2020 marks 150 years of The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) providing outstanding healthcare to the children of Victoria. From humble beginnings in the heart of Melbourne, the RCH has risen to become a world leading children’s hospital within a highly respected academic health science precinct. The anniversary is a time to celebrate the achievements of the RCH and the affection which the community feels for it.

Working closely with the RCH Foundation and the hospital you will be responsible for the implementation of the project plan; build a core group of partners with whom the plan will be executed; liaise with communications staff and social media support staff and volunteers to deliver the program, and assist in the delivery of supporter engagement programs.
